Wood as a material for direct contact with food has an old history. Succeeding the amphora, the wooden barrel has now been used for more than 2000 years for maturing wine. Wood not only is a storage container but also directly affects the body and aroma of the wine.
Nowadays wood is found as traditional and special choices in kitchen utensils, cutting boards, and crates and baskets for harvesting, storage, and transportation.
Developing solutions for improving the safety of food contact materials and for tackling the circular economy must include new scientific knowledge. Research into developing safer alternatives should be a priority.
